Oh Nancy is an national art collective that provides a vehicle for artists -- presenting them with a narrative structure that facilitates collaboration and multiple-authorship. Using contradiction, symbolism, and coincidence histories are created and layered-- anchored in this narrative blueprint. The story is a mythical and satirical portrait of Americana that examines fanaticism and the complexities of the American hero. Artists respond to different facets of the story, organically building it along the way, each exhibition the latest chapter in an ever growing epic. Oh Nancy was created and is directed by Arthur Henderson, Nathan Wellman and Fionn McCabe. The "Blank Land" is also open for viewing on Tuesday, from 11:00am to 5:00pm

The Thing in the Spring is happening this weekend (6/8-6/10) in Peterborough NH. It's three days of music and art, which of course means another Broke!
*broke is a multidisciplinary arts event that has taken place in Peterborough, NH five times since its inception in 2008. The *broke philosophy is simple: art is for everybody. All *broke events are free to the public, and *broke vendors commit to presenting their wares for less than $50.
*broke will take place on June 9th, 2012 from 10am-4pm in the beautiful Peterborough Town House (1 Grove Street, Peterborough NH) All ages/Free admission
I've done it three times and it's always awesome. A group of really amazing artists selling some cool stuff for cheap, it's definitely a good time. Stop by and check it out.
Other events during the weekend include: performances from world-renowned musicians, film screenings, and a local farm breakfast/cartoon cereal party at Harlow's Pub. Find out more information at www.thethinginthespring.com or The Thing in the Spring Facebook page.
